Synthesis of NPs by Microemulsion Method

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Microemulsions are self-aggregated colloidal systems that provide a controllable system with a promising application as nanoreactors: they can act as pools within which the properties of the nanoparticles can be controlled without difficulty. So in this chapter, I will deal with the metal NPs synthesized by the microemulsion method. This method allows in some cases to control the properties of size, shape, and crystal structure of the metallic NPs, thus generating with the same reagents a series of seeds of different shapes and sizes. The control of the reaction time, the temperature, and the reaction conditions will give us a production of different geometries that will find different applications in large range of research fields.
